A family member of the man who died kayaking posted a comment on our blog. It is listed in the comments in the post below.
In mentioning his death, I had no intention of making light of or being disrespectful in the face of this tragedy. My post mentioning this accident was meant to remind everyone who kayaks and canoes that conditions are currently dangerous. It was not meant to cause harm.
As the writer of that post, I apologize to the family for an unintentional harm the post may have caused. The post has been updated to omit the gentleman's name.
